“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8, NASB).
Remember me, rasped the criminal’s voice
As he hung dying next to Jesus.
Suffocating, Jesus still responded
Our Savior uttered grace to the last.
Today you shall join Me in Paradise
Jesus promised life while He gave His.
That moment dark, yet a gift to mankind
Jesus hung bleeding, breathed His last breath.
